rent a spring compresser for the front two... directions on house to use them is on the box.
break loose the 3 bolts on top of the strut
take off the wheel and there are two more bolts you take off behind the rotor
now take off the top 3 bolts and pull the assembly out
(make sure your careful not to hit the axel boot, if you tear it then your gonna need to repair it)
put the whoel thing on the floor and attach the spring compresser, and compress!
then you put you foot on it and start to un bolt the top.
slide the stock spring out and replace te top hat and your done with the front.

and for the rear... the spring is seperate soo just keep twisting and pulling untill it comes out. it might help if you unbolt the strut and the rotor.

more detail on what to do in the diy thread.
